January 12, 2014 - Young Woman Speaks Clearly for the First Time
A develop mentally delayed young woman worshipped with us. Before preaching, a pastor said, "We should pray for those who need healing." I walked over to her family. Her cousin said, "She did not speak." I prayed, the young woman took the microphone and said, "Thank you!" Recently, I talked to her mother and she told me that she had spoken some words in the past, but never spoke this clearly.
May, 2013 - Healed from Adhesive Capsulitis
Last August while pulling weeds in the garden I injured my left arm. I was sore for a few days then the pain went away. Several months later I was at the supermarket and went to reach for something behind me and in doing so got a jolt of pain in my arm that literally took my breath away. After this episode I tried to duplicate the movement to see what caused the pain but I couldn’t. Yet, when I least expected it the pain would reoccur. At the end of the year I sought the help of a physical therapist who by manipulating my arm was able to pinpoint the movement that would cause the pain. He then gave me some exercises to do that only served to aggravate the situation, now I was in excruciating pain all the time and began to lose mobility in my arm. I couldn’t put my arm on my hip, reach above my head or behind my back, throw my covers over me, place my arm under my pillow without experiencing pain. Being unemployed and without medical insurance I hesitated to go to the doctor because I didn’t want to incur any debt so I prayed for God’s provision. In February when I couldn’t take the pain anymore, through divine providence I was approved for Medicaid and went to see an Orthopedic Surgeon who diagnosed me with adhesive capsulitis. I felt of the Lord to worship at Valley Shore Church. After the sermon Pastor Marios who didn’t know a thing about my situation, ended the service with prayer and the first thing out of his mouth was “pain cannot exist in this atmosphere” and he commanded pain to leave the body, at that moment I felt God’s presence come upon me and the pain left my body. Pastor Marios continued to pray for healing of bones, muscles, tendons and called them into alignment with God. At which point I knew that not only did God remove the pain from my leg He had also healed my arm. And it was finished indeed! The healing of my arm was confirmed on the following Tuesday at the doctor’s visit. In spite of the fact that I had fallen behind this month in doing my exercises when the doctor checked my arm he was able to move it in the direction that I was not able to all these months, completing 100% mobility. A healing process that was supposed to take months God did in a second. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!!! The doctor was so amazed at my recovery. He called me his superstar patient because he has never had a patient recover from this condition as quickly as I had. I told him that I was a believer and that I prayed and God healed me.
February, 2013 - The Miracle of Michael
Recently God gave me, Kevin, the assignment of ministering to a young couple who I will call Bill and Jill. My wife informed me that Jill, her stylist, had been told that her baby, the couple’s first, was suffering from anencephaly, and wouldn’t survive. Based on that, Jill was being encouraged to abort her baby. She was struggling with the decision, but at that point was determined to keep her baby.
The next day I asked the Lord about this because I was so disturbed. The Lord told me that this baby would live and have a major influence for Him in the region, and that the enemy knew it and wanted the baby terminated. I assumed this meant the diagnosis was faulty, and/or a creative miracle was going to happen, and that the baby would be healed and be a leader in the impending revival in Connecticut.
Days later I shared this information with Jill. During the remaining months of the pregnancy, I got the opportunity to experience a lot of confirmation from the Lord, and lots of direct guidance as to how to encourage Bill and Jill. I was also able to lead Bill and Jill, and Jill’s mother, to the Lord. It was the easiest time I have ever had introducing people to our Savior. The baby was born alive, but only lived for one hour. I must admit I was confused and stunned. I was sure the baby was going to be healed! When I attempted to perform the miracle, I could not move my arms or speak. It was powerful, but felt very wrong to me. The parents were joyful and only wept when Michael stopped breathing. They couldn’t thank me enough. The family reacted the same way. The next day the Lord led me to Revelation 12. A woman is giving birth and a dragon is trying to consume the baby, but God immediately takes the baby to His throne. God explained to me that the woman in the story is not Jill, but that the procedure I witnessed was the same. He explained that He needed Michael unstained from the world (like He kept John the Baptist away from religious people for his assignment) to take on an assignment with the Archangel Michael and his army, and that his specific duties would include clearing the atmosphere over New England for open heaven revival to take place. He further explained that the world wasn’t ready for this miracle. It would have caused an avalanche of wrongful death law suits, suicides over grief, and a loss of confidence by medical professionals over possible misdiagnoses. God gently reminded me that the baby had lived when statistically it wasn’t supposed to, and that the fact that it was born from the mother had significance to his assignment. And the baby was going to have a major influence in the region, which had begun with the salvations of his parents and grandmother. He kept His promise. He also encouraged me not to add to His messages! That night I got a text from Jill. It was lengthy, but the two most important parts of it were, “It’s hard to give your baby to a stranger, which is why I am so glad that God is no longer a stranger…”, and, “…when I closed my eyes to go to sleep last night, I saw His hands come down and swaddle my son and take him up...” Glory to God!
